Philadelphia Film & Media Studies Seminar
From Temple colleague Oliver Gaycken, I recently found out that there's an ongoing local film and media studies seminar gathering scholars from area schools on a (usually) monthly basis. The next meeting is Thursday, November 30. Guest speaker will be Jon Lewis giving a talk titled "'If You Can't Protect What You Own, You Don't Own Anything': Piracy, Privacy and Public Relations in 21st Century Hollywood." Talk to be preceded by a workshop on publishing in film studies. Details from the host, UPenn's Cinema Studies department. I'm looking forward to attending and hopefully can report back a little on what I learn.
